5.0 out of 5 stars Superb upscaled version, 26 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget the negative reviews...this is a great upscaled version of the original and the sound top notch...they really have made a great job of rejuvinating this great series...I loved the original...but of course we didn'nt know better back then and technology was still in it's infantsy..I never saw the end of the series so when I read a great review by Bertie Buggerington I decided to go for it...especially at the this bargain price...88 episodes for less the £30...what more can you ask for..I have given 5 stars because my opinion differs to his in the fact I think it's a wonderful job they have done...and he reviewd this blu ray back when blu ray players were in their early days and they have moved on and play this series very well..I use an LG 3D blu ray.
Anyway...if you enjoyed the original you will certainly enjoy this...get it while you can at this price..Cheers

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, 22 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really thought this was going to be great....After first seeing it I was disappointed with the graphics...plus the amount of time you spend looking at a black screen every time you press pause or show the map is no fun at all..in fact it's tedious...Don't get me wrong...when it plays it plays ok..and you have to take your time to research your kills...if not you will NOT defeat the boss..so don't buy this if your expecting Assassins Creed or similar....And boy does it look and play like Assassins creed but with Orcs...You can quickly loose the plot and the actual game play because there are a LOT of side missions...and they do get repetitive..but in my opinion you need to do these to gain your abilities...It's not a button pushing frenzy...although at first it appears to be so...simple press's can be obtained to kill your apponent...it's a matter of keeping a cool head,and thinking the kill through before tackling the baddy...

The game is Huuuuge ...if you do the side missions...and in some respects it does have a replay factor..due to the fact you would have forgotten what you did many hours ago and you can certainly play it in many different ways...I just wish I'd waited for it to be second hand at a cheaper price...this has definately made me decide to do so in the future...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Just about as cheap as they come for switching devices on and off, 15 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A simple mechanical device for switching on lighting or any other electical item you may have...Being mechanical it cannot be precisely timed,but it will be very close with careful setting up...They don't come much more simple then this...although according to some it's too complicated...Dohhh...My advice would be to use a cocktail stick or some sort of item with a pointy end to push the levers which set the time on and off....(unless you have long nails)...Turn the ring to the time..plug in and that's it..It actually keeps time very well.The red led light comes on to tell you when power is activated...In my opinion,it's not worth paying any more to do the same thing..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great looking..great price and perfect for chaging incar, 15 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already have a double cigarette socket with 2 usb connectors ..but the usb's are only 500ma,(sharing the 500 together, so only giving each port 250ma..not near enough to keep my phone (LG G2) charged when using the sat nav...So I shopped around and this was the perfect solution...3 usb's in one very neat device..It's much smarter then the photo actually shows and the top half is actually brushed aluminium giving it a premium feel...The output described..2.1A...2A...and 1A are full power for each of the individual plugs...not added up together unlike some to make up 2.1 only...This is a genuine 5.1A output spread across the 3 usb's...It's very tiny,not like some have described (large)...and there's a very faint blue light to tell you it's powered (nothing in your face)...Just a word of advice...Make sure you use either the original lead that come with your device or at least a quality one thats equivalent...Not all leads are made equal as I found out with a USB to mini usb lead I had tucked away in my drawer...Even in the higher output socket it still only trickle charged (slow charging as your device might display)..this may be the reason some have reviewed it with a lesser star rating...This will easily power a hungry phone or tablet and a second one also with the 1A remaining for the not so power hungry...Very quick delivery too...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars First class Blu Ray Action/Drama..!!!, 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recieved this a week ago and I have already watched the first series so I feel I can review my findings now...Firstly...I was a fan of the La Femme Nikita..the one staring Peta Wilson (personally the best series and actress for this style of Action/Drama)...but after watching this, so far I'm loving it...Once I got used to the fact it's more of a carry on from the first series ...this time trying to bring down Division then I was hooked...it has a new set of twists and just as much back handed back stabbing characters...no one can be trusted..!!...My review though is to tell you more about the discs themselves....They are well presented...however..there is only a episode selection in the menu so you must remember where you left off...my Blu ray player remembers for me so I'm ok...as to the qualty of the blu ray itself...the picture is first class...full 1080p and full size ( no black bars top and bottom) and the sound is first class (5.1)..the steering is very good and when the action starts such as gunfire...you can actually feel the power of the guns,unlike some movies I have watched where they sound like a wet fart....Usually the speech can be drowned out or you have to adjust the speech to the action...not with these...they are spot on..in other words...they are very well recorded....If your looking for a well filmed well recorded with engaging characters series give this a go...and not a bad price for the full set...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Mobile phone holder with Limpet qualities, 2 Nov 2014
There are mobile phone holders, and those that think they are... This is the daddy of them regarding suction and looks. More expensive yes ..but worth it. Its very well made having a glue like bottom and silicon jaws to safely and firmly hold your treasured mobile. I've had several other makes and none of them came close to this for performance, especially in the grip and vibration department. It may not suit all dashboards (the more rounded type so check before you purchase) ,but it suits most,and even those with that crinkly finish.On the windscreen itself.. It's rock solid...and with a 2 year warranty you won't go wrong.. Stop buying the pretenders and get one of these.. Cheers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super clean windscreens, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried many windscreen cleaners..but this has to be the best ever...I thought Auto Glym was good..but this beats it hands down.It's almost like spraying water on the screen,but the results after you buff it up are great..You don't have to use very much either which obviously means it will go a long way despite it being a bit more expensive then most..but you actually get 680g...but with others you usually only get 500g..One thing I noticed was my auto wipe works better which must have meant a film build up from my other cleaners..If your looking for a great windscreen cleaner look no further...slighly more expensive then some but well worth it..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality and great price, 17 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I write my findings and review...I'll have to point out that many of the reviews on here are also on another product of a similar name....for some reason...the Netgear EX2700.?...But this is a review of the 'Netgear WN3000RP-200UKS 300Mbps Universal Wi-Fi Range Extender'..priced at £34.99..Apparently the differences are only supposed to be the colour (white or silver) but the names are completley different...however...on the Netgear site there are some spec differences too.

I'm going to have a go at Amazon for pulling a fast one too...I actually ordered the silver one,being cheaper and was told it was out of stock,after pre-ordering it for over 2 weeks I was asked if I wanted to cancel...so I did and ordered the white one (more expensive)...and guess what...Hey Presto...the cheaper one was suddenly available...so buyers beware of some of the tricks they pull.
Anyway....gripes aside...The one I ordered arrived very quickly and within 5 mins it was paired with my home modem ( A TalkTalk one)..The instructions actually tell you to pair it within the same room first...THEN..move it to where you have a weak signal....which in my case was the farthest bedroom having some 3 bars less then the 5 it should have...this was pushed to the full 5 bars no problem...All you do is push the WPS on the Netgear and within 2 mins push the WPS on your home modem...and that's it...One word of advice..When you first plug the Netgear in, the power light may come on as Orange...Press the on/off button on the side to turn off...then On again and wait around 20/30 seconds...THEN it should turn Green...be patient as it may appear to be broken,but it's not.The speed is just the same as my modem,so no loss as some have reported...for me this is 15mb...I'm on a phone line so this is the best to be expected...I tested it on streaming BBCi player and the likes and it streamed with no probs at all and I was still able to browse the internet on my tablet and phone...all in all,it's a great device

It's well made and it much smaller then I anticipated,being described by some as a large device...it's about half as big again as a normal plug that's all..SO...if your looking for an extension on your Wi-Fi in those weak spots,this should suffice that need...hard wired or wireless...Cheers
